College Inducts 92 Students into Local Chapter of International Honors Society
The Upsilon Gamma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges, recently inducted 92 new members at Middlesex County College. The students were recognized for their academic achievement, leadership abilities and service to their community and college.
"We are very pleased to recognize the accomplishments of this distinguished group of students," said Professor Yvonne Sisko of the English Department, one of the three faculty Chapter advisors. "Membership in Phi Theta Kappa may entitle these students to apply for millions of dollars of scholarship aid awarded by four-year institutions throughout the United States, scholarship money that is specifically reserved for Phi Theta Kappa students who have graduated from two-year colleges."
Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is open to students who have earned at least 12 but not more than 42 degree credits and have a grade point average of at least 3.5. "There are limitless opportunities for our students who earn membership in this honor society," Professor Sisko said. "Phi Theta Kappa membership is the reward for academic achievement and service."
